Sometimes there are great things that I’m desperate to tell you about but they don’t feel quite big enough for a whole blog post. I tried doing ‘current favourites’ posts but they started becoming huge, unwieldy beasts and just didn’t have the same feel to them. I want these Friday Faves posts to be like the urgent WhatsApp messages I send to my friends saying ‘If you haven’t watched/listened to/tried/eaten *insert current obsession* then we cannot be friends anymore until you have rectified this situation’.

So let’s go – here are the things that I desperately want you to discover so that we can bond over how much we both adore them.

I was such a latecomer to podcasts but I am now desperately trying to make up for lost time. They are a great thing to have on the background while I’m working: it can be quite a lonely existence being a freelancer and I really enjoy having people nattering away in the background when I’m working alone in my flat. So I’ve picked the 5 best podcasts to listen to now, and I tried to pick a range of themes and subjects so hopefully there’s something here for everyone. Don’t forget to let me know your podcast recommendations in the comments below!

You have probably seen the media banging on about the ‘feud’ between Helen Mirren and Charlotte Tilbury regarding make up and ‘to wear or not to wear’ – because, you know, two women can’t disagree without it being a feud, right? *look to camera*
